Small but Important Ways to Take Care of your Mental Health

Taking care of your mental health is so important. If you don’t then you risk running yourself into the ground and you may even find that you go on to experience anxiety and even depression.

Take a Mental Health Day

You don’t always need a reason to take a day off. If you feel as though your mental health is suffering then it is so important that you take some time for yourself. When you do, you will find that you are way more productive and that you are also able to concentrate more at work as well. Sometimes, taking a day off can work as preventative medicine, as it can help you to boost your immune system and it can also help you to relax too. By doing this, you might actually be able to prevent sick days in the future and this is so important if you want to start looking after yourself more.

Do Something Different

If you have lost track of the amount of nights that you binge watch a series, only to feel tired and disoriented the next day, then this is a sure-fire sign that it is time for you to try something new. Do an experiment where you try not to watch TV at all before bed. Instead, read, color, call someone or even have a bath. When you do this, you won’t be as likely to stay up until the early hours of the morning and you may even find that it is a fantastic way for you to unwind. If you just can’t unwind no matter what you do, then consider exploring neurofeedback.

Act Like you’re on Vacation

When you are on vacation, there is a high chance that you will have a more relaxed perspective on the world. You may choose to go swimming and walking instead of going to the gym, and you may even want to go out to dinner with your friends instead of eating in. By following this rule, you can then relax more on a day to day basis and you can also start to reclaim much more of your time.

Meditate

Sure, meditation may not appeal to you and this is completely normal, but it’s important that you give it a go from time to time. By spending just a few minutes trying to calm down and even by focusing on your breathing, you can then begin to feel much better in yourself. If you just don’t know where to start with meditation then sit down and focus on breathing in, and then out again for two minutes. When you have mastered this, and you feel comfortable, then increase it to five minutes.

Refined Sugar

Refined sugar can be found in sodas, candies, pastries and so much more. You have to remember that this won’t cure depression at all, but it will help to keep your blood level stable. This can contribute to how much energy you have in the day. If you want to help yourself even more then focus on having more magnesium in your diet. This will help you to alleviate any headaches you get, and it will also help you if you experience fatigue too.

FUUNSOO Hip Resistance Bands

This product contains three sizes; Small (pink), Medium (red) and Large (black).  They are not like the stretch bands of yore.  Those were nothing more than a big ol', open-ended rubber band, really thin and surely waiting to just snap and smack the user in the face or some other vulnerable area of skin.

Highly recommended!

Meal planning

What you eat is crucial to your health, and although it's not a bad thing to once in a while have a takeaway or eat some junk food, it doesn't mean that you should be eating it everyday if you want to maintain a good level of physical and mental health. Food is one of the things that definitely can be quite expensive, and depending on where you live, it can either be less or more than in other places. A good way to combat this is to plan your meals in advance. Meal planning is not as difficult as it sounds, and although it can take a little bit of time to find your feet in getting used to meal planning it really can save you time, save you money, and also help you make better choices when it comes to food, since you'll have your meals ready for when you come home from work and not have to give into temptation to buy something processed or convenient.

Cutting back on alcohol

Whilst there’s certainly nothing wrong with having a glass of wine or some beers here and there, alcohol is not something that you should be drinking excessively, and although we all know that we have mostly all been over indulgent at times and felt bad for it, not only physically but emotionally and mentally because alcohol can contribute to things like depression and anxiety, so if you suffer from any of these kind of things then it’s best to try and limit your intake as much as possible. Once you cut back or you can give up on alcohol completely you may see some changes such as weight gain which can either be a good or a bad thing depending on your current body goals.

However it's important to remember that this weight gain will subside and it's just your body's way of getting used to the change. You also see other changes such as increased energy, better sleep patterns, decreased anxiety and better skin, so giving up or drastically decreasing your alcohol intake is one of the best things you can do for your health.

Regular exercise

Regular exercise is one of the main ways that everyone knows to keep healthy and fit and that certainly doesn't mean that you have to be at the gym everyday lifting weights or doing things that you don't enjoy. You can do things like going walking, swimming, running, or finding other activities that allow you to stay active, and getting regular exercise even if you don't have a lot of money or time to do so.
